Neo Soul Style Lick Using A Cool Chord Progression – Neo Soul Chordal Lick Guitar Lesson

Hey, this is Matias Rengel with Guitar Control, we’ll be learning this really cool new soulish style lick.

Click on the Tabs button to follow chords and tabs.

So we’re going to start off with this really cool lick we’re going to place your index finger on the 14th fret of the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st string what you’re going to do is place your ring finger on the 16th fret of the 1st string and you’re going to stick it up.

Now I know that there’s a chord involved but I think its ok if we learn first the actual melodic part. So for the melodic part I never play in the core but we are just like kind of doing from 14 to this thumb, move on to 16th or to 17 back to a 16th and back to the 14 so practice that. Sometimes what I like to do is I play the 16th and come back with a pull-off or sometimes select to hammer-on and pull off all the time right so practice it up and down, right or down.

Now right after that what you’re going to do is to play this 17th fret of the 2nd string on the 14th fret of the 2nd string and then you want to bring the same progression down four frets. Remember this is the melodic part super simple in fact if you see it here on the open strings is as simple as this just played a little bit higher up on the scale and with the chord you know the idea of course that you sustain the chord.

Sometimes I’m playing it a little bit harsh, now for you to get it very well the idea of this type of stuff is you play it soft and practice a lot the tone it’s very important. This time right after were going to check it out and we’re going to go see how you ended up on the 8th fret because we ended up on the 10th fret because we went four frets down from the 14 so you’re on the 10th fret, what you’re going to do is you go with this finger one fret below this finger and you go here into the 9th fret of the 3rd string this one is going to go into this 8th fret of the 2nd string and this one is going to go into a 10th fret.

Check out what you’re going to do from here you’re going to bring this cord up three frets up and instead of keeping this one here you’re going to bring it one step below from here you’re there and what you’re going to do is take it out from there and go into the 13th fret and we’re going to move it’s almost as if you move this chord one step up half step up but you bring this down to the 13th fret of the 2nd string so you end up with these two fingers one except in front of a 1st and 2nd string and then you’re going to put your pick here on the 14th fret of a third and your index on the top fret of the 4th string so hold together got it.

So practice that alone and now what you’re going to do after that is to go out see how we started here.  We’re going to start here on the second one that we played on the 10th fret and you’re going to do the same thing you go four half steps down and from here you go one down and you’re going to put this one over there the same thing, instead this one appears right now what you going to do is to have some sort of guide.

My guide whenever I’m doing this is usually in this case it’s going to be the 3rd string I know that this one is on the 5th fret right here then this chord shape right here is on the 8th fret and right here in this chord shape it’s on 8th fret but on the 2nd string right there. So when I’m doing this my guide of course is the index finger you always have to have a guide when your brain this sort of stuff I wasn’t going to get lost I know that cool it’s on the 14th fret 10th fret and then we go here and now I changed my guide its now the middle finger and then I go here then fret my guide 6th fret 5th, 8th, 9th and there you have it that’s all. It’s a really cool lick it’s going to help you and it has a lot of different techniques in it and I think one important part of this is that you keep the chord changes smooth when you’re going from here and you can slide it also.
